Acupuncture might relieve headache pain

Thursday, March 02, 2006

People who deal with migraines might find relief in a drug-free alternative treatment.

Acupuncture apparently works just as well as standard drugs. German researchers compared the effects of real and fake acupuncture with drug treatment for migraine and found all equally effective.

Acupuncture has been shown to relieve nausea, stress, arthritis pain in the knee and pelvic pain during pregnancy.

Scientists say they need to do more research to find out the biological effects behind acupuncture.
